    Latest iOS on XS - but have been experiencing this for at least 3 months.

    Anyone else’s Safari insta-defaulting to Reader View upon completed page loads? Every time I load a page, within 1-2 seconds (if not faster) the view automatically switches to Reader View. Kind of annoying. Enough so that I’m posting here.

    Is that a setting I can toggle or a bug?
    Because I’d prefer to not have this auto-happen.


    Cheers.

    There is a setting under preferences>websites where you can choose the reader to be on or off or per site, but I don't know if that's the problem for you.

    I don’t believe there is setting where you stated, but you can tap and hold on the reader button while in safari to toggle off auto-reader for all websites.

    Thanks Chazzle!
    I also was not seeing the recommendation Ruggy mentioned above. But your suggested tap & hold - which I didn’t know was an option - appears to have done the trick.

    Yah learning!

    Cheers.
